    Unless I'm missing something, you can only save changes to the "notebook" accompanying each game when it is your opponent's move. I have often found I would like to save notes on a position when it is my turn, also. For example, I might have a look at a position, spot some significant tactical points, decide to come back to it when I have more time/a clearer head. I would like to jot down some notes about the thinking I have already done and save them so they appear when I next look at the position.

    Presumably not a difficult change to make?

    Write your notes, don't move your piece, click submit move.

    Not intuitive but it works.

    Yes, you can do it by just pressing 'Submit move' without making a move.

    Still, I wouldn't mind seeing a separate 'save notebook' link anyway. Doing it by pressing 'submit move' always makes me a little nervous that I might submit a wrong move accidentally.

    Just click a blank square on the board, and hit move. That will activate the safety and undo ANY move you might have forgot you made.

    Save text would be nice, this is not the first time someone asked for this.

    I know, but it still seems like a case where a mistake could easily be made.

    I would like to have a note attached to a move so when the game is finished you have your annotations ready.

    Just a heads up... like I said, this is not the first time this has been asked for.

    I was just giving you a foolproof way to ensure you don't have a move loaded.

    Other than that, we wait on the admins who seem reluctant to make any changes to the code regardless how important or simple they are.

    The fact that this is a very unintuitive way of doing it was pointed out to Russ during beta testing. For some reason, it stayed the same.

    If you have any php scripts, maybe you could write a greasemonkey script to add the link "Save Notebook changes", with the underlying link being "javascript:document.notebookform.issavenotebook.value='true';document.notebookform.submit();"
